The 1999 Washington Redskins season was the franchise's 68th season in the National Football League (NFL) and their 63rd in Washington, D.C. The team improved on their 6-10 record from 1998 to go 10-6. They succeeded to the extent of reaching their first postseason since 1992 and beating the Lions in the first week of the playoffs; as of 2020, this is Washington's most recent home playoff win. Their season would end after losing to the Buccaneers by a single point in the divisional playoff round. The season would also be the first for new team owner Daniel Snyder. It would be the fourth and final season that the Redskins qualified for the playoffs in the 1990s and for the next five seasons, the team fell out of contention. They returned to the playoffs in 2005.
